fbi assistant director tom fuentes is extremely knowledgeable about how this kind of investigation can unfold and how it can change over time. he joins us this morning from washington. good morning. what do you make of david petraeus' appearance on the hill. did lawmakers get the answers they were looking for? >> i think they got many of the answers. it is hard to unravel that entire incident in just a short period of time. so, it make take more explanations in a wider group of officials to come in and comment on it. but, you know, so much has been made about his appearance or his resignation prior to testifying and, you know, it's been, you know, it's been interesting because those committees can subpoena him or anybody else any time they want. it is not like he was suddenly inaccessible by retiring or leaving his position with the cia. as far as the investigation goes, that's still going to continue and still going to continue to take time and i think part of the discussion is just the sematic difference here. well, it was an act of terrorism, no doubt of that. but a terrorist act ca
's bring in cnn contributor tom fuentes who is a former fbi director and knows a thing or two about protocol. tom, did the fbi have a duty to inform congressional leaders like her as they were finding out this information? >> good morning, ashleigh. i think that remains to be seen whether they did or didn't. the fbi has very tristrict protocols about who is notified on this type of a situation that could become very public and political and could continue to hurt the effort to investigate the case. had it been determined that there was a security speech or that director petraeus had been involved potentially in some criminal activity, yes, they would make the notifications and that decision would be made by director muller of t. in fact, if they are getting towards the end of the investigation where they think they are not going to, then there really isn't a need and the second reason why they don't make she's notifications as a matter of routine is that it then creates a media circus and political frenzy where it's difficult to continue the investigation. if they have additional qu
and former fbi assistant director, tom fuentes. fran, what do you make of this? as it's evolved and what we know right now? >> first of all, on the benghazi claim, she made that they were holding prisoners there, we should tell our viewers, anderson, the cia has vehemently denied that and says it's not true. look, this is a real problem for the morale and continuity of the cia. they have been through something like seven directors in eight years. this is not -- they lived through worse. they lived through the bombing where they lost members but the problem is the death by a thousand cuts. the clip you played by dianne feinstein suggests she calls it peeling layers of an onion. what we don't know is the whole story, the facts of the story. this jill kelley, it's sort of odd these harassing e-mails. why would a private citizen getting harassing e-mails merit the attention of the fbi at all? much less when they looked at it and saw there was no direct threats in it, why did they continue that investigation? >> it seems like from everything i read, i'm just citing this "wall street journal" rep

contributors. tom fuentes and james marks. thanks very much for coming in. you think he's finally put this benghazi thing to rest, general petraeus, by his testimony, or are there still lingering questions out there? >> this is a store thaet won't go away for some time. there truly is a disconnect between what was earlier in the process reported and what dave petraeus is now saying inside the room, and even that is being discussed and debated. >> what about the confirmation potentially of season rice, the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. you think because of what happened in benghazi, what she said five days after september 11th on those sunday morning talk shows, is that legitimate to go after her on this as opposed -- the president says, you have a problem, come after me, don't go after her. >> we need to stop attacking ambassador rice. she was on message. she didn't make that up when she went on the talk shows. she was not rolling her own intelligence jrb she had talking points. she stayed on message. the challenge we have to come to is was it the right message five days after the event
instantly. you see this all the time. >> reporter: cnn contributor tom fuentes says under its protocols the fbi and justice department should have kept it inside their circles, unless there was evidence of a breach of security or criminal wrongdoing. and there was no evidence of either. "the journal" reports the fbi interviewed petraeus the week before the election. and nbc news reports the bureau wrapped up its investigation on november 2nd. we could not get comment from the fbi or the justice department on the time lines. so why didn't congressman cantor go to top congressional leaders when he got the information on october 27th? a cantor aide says the congressman's information came from one person in one phone call, that it was unsubstantiated and he felt it was up to the fbi to look into it and report to it the appropriate people in congress when the time was right. >> what was the nature of the relationship between petraeus and this other woman, jill kelley, whose name all of a sudden has surfaced? >> she is described in just about every account as just a family friend of the petra

that paula broadwell was sending harassing e-mails to a another woman close to petraeus. tom fuentes is the cnn investigator, and i asked him about the cia e-mails. >> well, that is the concern when it starts, but when you look into that in cia or the fbi headquarters or any of the intel agencies, often dual computer systems to receive outside e-mails, because somebody may send a complaint over the public internet service providers and then of course sh, the classifi e-mail systems internal ti and they are completely separate, but the fact that someone is receiving a threat at that level, they have to investigate and look at the nature of the threat, and look at the person making the threats, and start subpoenaing that person's records to see if they are threat eng other officials or if there is more to the story, and who they are connected with. during that subsequent part of the investigation, that is where they determine the connection between the other woman and general petraeus. >> new york senator chuck schumer is warning the insurance companies don't force the hurricane deduct

broadwell's home last night and carried out boxes and boxes of stuff, including a computer. tom fuentes is former fbi assistant director. morning, tom. >> morning, carol. >> as you watch all of this unfold, i want to get your thoughts on it. >> it appears that the fbi has received new information that there may be classified material or something either in documents or on her computers at the residen residence. she gave permission, so it was a consensual search. they went ahead and conducted that search last night and remo removed some material, which will be examined at the office in more detail. if i could add, if it had been really serious usually the fbi, if they were trying to be extra cautious, would go ahead and get a warrant even if permission is given for a consensual search. it really -- the fact that it was consensual, we don't know what exactly information they received to prompt the additional new search but that's what happened last night. they took out more documents and material. >> we know she has some classified documents in her possession. and supposedly they did not
most agents would understand it is inappropriate. >> cnn contributor tom fuentes says the agent's conduct likely wouldn't have affected the probe. what would have pushed the investigation this far? others say content of e-mails. they detail coming and goings of the generals. parts of his schedule were not public. former cyber crime prosecutor says it would raise two questions for the fbi. >> one would be the concern that one has more access to information that person shouldn't see or look at. the second is a security concern. >> that security concern he said would be the possible targeting of petraeus or top generals that could have been mentioned in e-mails from broadwell. if she puts that information about schedules into e-mails to kelley and that gets circulated further, the generals could be at personal risk. willinger says that's enough for the fbi to take it further. the fbi hasn't commented furtherer. an official says it was appropriate to investigate. >> does the fbi routinely investigate these harassing e-mails? >> the fbi is devoting more time these days to investigati
investigation. but cnn has new information from tom fuentes who spoke to sources with knowledge of the probe. he says after kelley complained to an fbi agent about the harassing e-mails, agents from the bureau's cyber crime unit got a subpoena and got the internet service provider to give them information on who owned the account of the sender. >> what's the internet address they are being transmitted by. >> reporter: that likely would have been more than one internet address. news reports say paula broadwell, now known as the person sending harassing e-mails to kelley believed to send them from various places. depending on where the computer was plugged in, the sender would have different ip addresses. an expert on internet monitoring explains what the fbi likely did next. >> so what they did is they determined that she logged into this e-mail account from hotels around the country. and so they contacted the hotels and got the guest lists, the names of people who were staying at the hotels on those various nights and compared the list of guests over a few nights at these different hotels and lo
to cnn contributor tom fuentes that investigators are looking at whether broadwell, who later had an adulterous affair with petraeus was given classified material by petraeus aides because they may have thought petraeus wanted her to have it as she was in afghanistan gathering material for her book "all in" a biographer on the four-star. "the washington post" first reported details about the petraeus aides. petraeus has authorized former aides and friends to tell reporters he personally never gave broadwell classified information. government sources have told cnn broadwell had material such as powerpoint presentations and schedules. but fuentes says while brod well would have gotten her research material from a lot of sources, be careful about jumping to conclusions. >> so say that the implication when the fbi is looking at someone, you know, makes it sound like they're the subject of a criminal investigation. right now it's -- that part of it is still in the let's determine how this material is provided and who gave it and under what circumstances. >> reporter: even if the inform
